Tried 'n' True: A recipe with veggies from the 'truck patch'

We are getting to the end of the growing season, so I reminisce.

When I was a little girl, Mom would bring in whatever was left in her truck patch. For you young readers, that is another name for an extra large garden.

This recipe is easy; it just takes time to grind the vegetables. With five of us, three of us got to bring in vegetables.

One would wash, another would cut and seed the vegetables. Then one would grind up everything. Mom would mix the seasoning; she also cooked. Everyone was busy.

Dad and my brothers were nowhere to be found. They always showed up to eat our work.

Those are good memories now. Hope I have enough to make this tried and true recipe this year. Thanks, Mom.
